Coach Cliff
In 1996, my oldest son started playing Youth Football, and because of a need for volunteers, I found myself an Assistant Coach for his team.  They threw me a hat and a shirt, and under the most excellent tutelage of Coach Jack Goolsby, I became a coach that year, and found that this was something I did not just want to do, instead felt I must to.
The following pictures chronicle my journey from scared half to death assistant to Head Coach of my beloved Mighty Mite (players aged 6 to 8) division.

Someday I'm going to figure out how I keep getting myself into these things!!
In 2001 John and Billy decided to try baseball, and when I explained to the powers that be
that wanted me to be a coach that I didn't know much about baseball, and in my efforts to help a
"friend", I found myself behind the plate dodging baseballs as an Umpire, and for the 2002 Season
I will be serving the league as the Chief Umpire.

Tell me again....how many strikes do you get?
Square Dancing
In August of 2004, my father passed away.  If you want to know what an awesome man he was, please feel free to click HERE to go to his tribute site.  Dad was a Square Dance caller, and he instilled in me a love of Square Dancing, and on the long drive home after his funeral, I realized that this was something I needed to get back to doing.   And it was one of the better decisions I've ever made...because Dad is always with me out there on the floor, and I have met some people that are more like family than friends.

This is a picture taken in Gig Harbor Washington, and when I had to give it a name, all that came to mind was "friends", but perhaps a better title would have been family because those people in the photo have become like a family to me.

Unfortunately as happens with families, sometimes we have to say goodbye, and today we gathered in SeaTac Washington to say goodbye to a dear friend, Doug Downey Sr., the distinguished looking individual with the million dollar smile on the far left of this picture.  Doug, you are gone from us, but you will never be forgotten.....we will all miss that smile and sense of mischief you brought with you.
